Cruise news from social media: let the games begin

Cruise Biz Buzz – Cruise News from Social Media for July 28, 2012

Cruise news from social media: let the games begin! Roundup of cruise buzz from the ships and ports for avid cruisers. If I worked at Sivlersea Cruises, I would be very happy that someone captured Silver Cloud sailing under the Olympic Rings at Tower Bridge. Could there be a more appropriate photo to kick off the beginning of the London 2012 Olympic Games?
